Treatment of Pimples:- Acne/pimples are easily treatable within 7 days to 1 month. Even dark spots would go away themselves within 3-6 months or you may use Benoquin (Hydroxyquinone 2%) cream for 1 month to get rid of black spots once pimples have got cured. Salicylic acid should never be applied on pimples as it being acid would cause damage to nearby skin and may cause scarring and black spots. Acne or Pimples result due to hypersensitive skin, arrested growth of sebaceous glands, high androgen production, high sebum production, frequent blocking of sebaceous glands with subsequent bacterial infection of sebaceous glands. You are producing more androgens but that is good for your sexuality. Excess androgens may cause both hyper-sexuality or night-falls and pimples but we can't give you ant-androgens because they may cause feminization of your body and mentality. Androgens cause more sebum production in sebaceous glands of your skin of face and cause pimples. More sebum production causes oiliness and dust particles stick easily to oily skin closing pores of sebaceous glands and sebum is stuck inside causing enlargement of gland as pimple. If it gets infected, it may develop pus making white heads. Some times skin is very sensitive and applying chemicals or drugs in the form of cosmetics and may result into pimples. In some people, skin growth is slow or arrested along with being oversensitized or associated with high production of androgens. This result into development of reddish pink pimples which grow very slowly but new ones keep on erupting and the whole face is filled with hundreds of reddish pink pimples. In some cases, pimples spread beyond face to neck, shoulder, back and even chest. If you pinch pimples, nearby skin gets damaged and heals by growth of new skin that contains more melanin due to overgrowth of melanocytes resulting into blackish pigmentation with or without scar. For pimples you do following things: Wash your face with mild soap like Lux, Rexona etc 3-4 times in day time, at the time of sleeping, at least once in night if got awaken and just after getting up from sleep. You should keep your face free from oiliness due to sebum on your face. Take AD capsules (containing fat-soluble Vitamin-A) 20 capsule every week. Vitamin A will diminish sebum production and enhance growth of skin and pimples and pimples will be shed off rapidly. (you get a bottle of 1000 AD capsules for around Rs100/-) You can also apply local cream or gel of Adaptalene (marketed by the name of acnelene) on your face. If you apply they refrain from sunlight. Adaptalene is also a retinoid like Vitamin -A. With Vit-A or adaptalene, pimples come outwards rapidly giving impression that problem of pimples is being enhanced. But keep patience. Pimples will shed off within a week. Tretinoin is also used for pimples but don't use it as it causes hyper-pigmentation. If the pimples get infected with pus, take Azithromycin 500 mg on empty stomach once daily for 5-days under medical supervision. Never pinch pimples but let them shed off or fall themselves otherwise blackening will occur and scar may also be formed. Do not apply cosmetics, cleansing lotions, sun-screens, chemical lotions or solutions or medicated soaps to already over-sensitized skin of yours. Use mild soaps like lux, rexona etc or cetrim soap congaing cetrimide. Or you may use besan paste or multani mitti to remove oiliness from face. Take less fats that provides triglycerides in blood which get converted into sebum in sebaceous glands. Take plenty of water to keep you hydrated. Consume green vegetables, salad and fresh seasonal fruits. Consume Green tea regularly. Divert your mind from sexual activities and pornographic literature or wash your face frequently during these activities as these activities increase androgen secretion in body which increase oiliness of face. Take proper and regular sleep in a disciplined life. Remain happy. Get rid of anxiety & tensions. Control your ambitions, envies and jealousies. Do regular morning evening walks and/or exercises. Black spots or pigmentation of acne/pimplea may subside itself within 3-6 months after pimples have cured. You may apply Benoquin (Hydroxyquinone 2%) cream for 1 month to get rid of them. If you have deep scars. You need Scar treatment by creams, laser or plastic cosmetic surgery.

Scalp getting oily and hair is getting thinner, is the indication of the problem androgenetic alopecia. There are various kinds of baldness. Reversible and irreversible. Reversible means hair roots are alive and regrowth is possible. Irreversible means hair roots are dead and regrowth is not possible. It is very important to understand the status of hair follicle and density of the hair on front and top area of the scalp. Eat food which is good for hair like sprouts, beans, nuts, green leafy vegetables. Oil the scalp 3/week and wash it 3 /week consult trichologist.

Is your hair loss accompanied with greying of hair and have they become very thin? your hair needs a very high protein well-rounded diet. Hair and nails are the last organs to get nutrition in the body, hence only if all the organs get sufficient nutrition and proteins, only then the remaining nutrition would be used for hairs. A strand of hair is composed of mostly protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Hence a therapeutic diet prescribed by a registered dietitian can help a lot in hair growth. Besides diet excessive stress, current/past dandruff and some medication are conclusively known to retard hair growth and promote hair loss. - cut down on the use of hair spray, hair gels, and styling creams that contain harsh chemical ingredients, which can dry out the scalp and cause the formation of flakes. Also harsh treatments such as perms, colours, relaxers etc take a toll on the health of your hair. - avoid changing your shampoo and conditioner constantly. Stick to one good mild cleansing shampoo for six months before changing. - excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, rain water and dust without proper protection makes the hair dry, brittle and limp. Use a live in conditioner during the rains to protect it from the humidity and wash and oil it regularly to maintain a healthy scalp. I may also prescribe medications like biotin or minox. That are proven to help in hair growth and repair.

Lomela is a steroid based cream. There are so many side side effects on long term use. So better stop using it. Use some broad spectrum sunscreen on regular basis. Maintain a healthy life style. Drink lots of water. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Instead you can use homoeopathic med. Berb. Aquifolium q / 2 timea a day.

Grape seed oil controls hair loss grape seed oil is an effective natural hair conditioner and moisturizer. It can address hair issues like hair loss, dandruff and weakened hair. You can use grapeseed oil as a regular hair care product to get healthy hairs. Grape seed oil contains anti-oxidants that might be effective to control dht production at the hair roots, which happens to be one of the main reasons of hair fall. Simply massage your scalp and hairs regularly at night with this oil, let it seep in overnight and wash off with a cleanser in the morning.
